SUPER! This is how I am currently feeling.
Liquid Cash - $3950.24 (Up roughly $500)
RRSP - $1657.62 (Registered Retirement Savings Plan. The turtle won the race)
Stock Fund - $1350 (This should have been cashed in March, waiting on the accounts department)
Credit Union Shares - $120 (Minimum requirement for membership)
Car Loan - $3200 (Officially into the last half)
Loan M - $1750 (I haven't started working on this yet. I owe my mom this for the down payment)
March & 1st Quarter Review
A lot of how March turned out went into the budget review that was posted yesterday so instead of repeating most of what is in that, I will highlight a few points.
- I blew budget by $282.31
- $160 of that was purely saving more than I budgeted to save
- I made $624.96 more than my expected income for the month.
So for the quarter let's see how I am doing. On the goals front, I have accomplished 3 of the 12 goals for 2012. That means I am on track, I'll detail more in my next post. The main goal to focus on in this net worth review is my goal to achieve a 12K net worth. To be on track to make this goal this year, I should have a net worth of 3K. I'm about $1000 behind on this one or in goal tracking terms, one full month behind on this goal. If I continue at the current rate which for the past two months has been roughly a $1000 increase, I will still continue to be behind. I'll have to find a way to fix this, without hoping for a windfall.
Overall, it hasn't been a bad quarter. It had it's share problems like my first budget being shot, but it was amazing. Now that it is done, it means that P will soon be finished with school and back home in time for the summer. That is one thing I am looking forward to. It's going to make an interesting go with my finances around here as well.
It's going to be an awesome year. How is it looking for you?
